Door Hinges- Clio

Hello All,

I am a novice at this so hopefully someone will be able to give me some sound advice.

I rather cleverly lost grip of my friends passenger door on her Clio Expression 16V - into a much larger red bus.

The door is somewhat crunched although the A-frame is unhurt. The door currently is closed and locked.

I bought a spare door and when the mechanic went to fit it, he said that the hinges on the old door and car did not fit the new as it was a different type of pin and the orginial door hinge was part welded onto the car.

I have spoken to Renault and now been sold a Hinge Door CL (7701468331) to adapt the hinge for the replacement door.

My question is - has anyone used this adaptor before, or at least come across this discrepancy in hinge types on the same year/model of car?

I don't want to get the car back for a few days, take it to the bodyshop only to be told it's still not the right adaptor/door etc.....
